  1. Tomorrow everyone knows the importance of 3 points so please don’t just sit there moaning and having a go at manager or players , get out your seat and show your passion , show how much you want the club to go forward , cheer these players who have taken the season down to the last home game and gave us something to cling to cheer them on Congradulate them on another year of improvement we can’t ask for more , we have no Devine right to promotion in this ever improving division -so enjoy tomorrow, paint the kids faces red and be PROUD to be a city fan . Let’s hear the ASHTON ROAR it’s down to

  2. So what's likely to happen here? My guess is Bailey Wright gets a ban and Aston Villa get a penalty.

  4. In the event that a club does not fulfill its fixtures any points gained by Bristol City against this club will be deducted and Aston Villa and Leeds Utd will be promoted automatically. Hardly seems fair but thems the rules .

  6. Depends on whether Harlee Dean writes a letter detailing his latest hallucinations or not. If he does then of course Fammy gets banned. "Deer EFL I sawed Famara Jayjoo lick da envylope wiv the Bolton players monee" 6 game ban incoming.

  7. Many years ago when i was living in Australia my Grandfather in London died. About 6 weeks later i received a letter from my Grandmother wishing me well in my life and signed "Farewell Gran". She had never written to me before. She died about 2 weeks later.

  9. A legendary OTIB meme, which was also my first attempt redesigning our badge a few years ago now, I think captured the essence of Ashton Gate far better than Jon Lansdown's unicycling Robin.

  15. Walking out of the game, the Winterstoke car park with car engines running then across to KFC why visit KFC and the retail outlet at 4:30pm? over to Sainsburys loads of cars with their engines running and all wanting to leave just after the match has finished. Take a tip don't come anywhere near Ashton Gate on match days unless your coming to the game Then look at the amount of cars coming from Hotwells towards Ashton Gate why note cone off where you drop down by the former Mercedes garage and head towards the David Lloyd centre and up to Bemmy down via the new link road Stand

  16. So there has been a call to retire the No5 shirt at Celtic. https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/celtic/celtic-should-retire-no-5-shirt-to-honour-billy-mcneill-neil-lennon-1-4915247 Am I a bit insensitive? As I think it’s a bit of a bonkers idea, he has died after living a long life and many have worn the shirt since, if he had died in his prime whilst still playing, I could understand it, but more than 40 years on.....

  17. There is a morbid trend in modern life that every death has to be marked somehow, then the PR people get involved and a lot of people want to be seen to be doing something, it gets right on my tits! The guy already has a statue outside Celtic Park and will always be remembered as a legend there and that should be enough.

  19. Exactly. But what is worse, i.e. more enlightening or even embarrassing, is when you listen to foreign players such as Vincent Kompany, Virgil van Dijk being interviewed. Not only does their vocabulary seem larger, but they speak more eloquently compared to many of their English counterparts - there is a distinct absence of 'obviously', 'you know', 'like'. I once heard Xabi Alonso being interviewed - forget afternoons being spent in pubs, betting shops or race courses; he was for visiting museums and art galleries, and was able to discuss the subject in perfect English.

  21. If Johnson got us promoted, we must stick with him regardless. Promotion is surely one part of a long term plan with him at the helm that must be able to withstand a relegation.

  22. I have a similar dilemma - getting married tomorrow so clearly one has to prioritise - I' ve got a Heineken Lounge hospitality ticket as well.....so if anyone wants to take my place they're welcome ...pm me It's at St. Mary's Church Thornbury 2pm and her name's Heather.

  23. When my daughter was born, we were home to QPR. Wife went in labour early Saturday am so knew couldn’t make the game. In the hospital, things started getting a bit fraught about 3pm. Losing babies heartbeat etc. Major worry. After an emergency call, they scrubbed up and we had an emergency c-section at about half four. Wife gave birth to a tiny (4lb) baby. As the doctor placed her on the wife’s chest he leaned over to me and whispered (1-1...Dele Adebola). God bless the NHS

  24. The City match will be live on Radio Bristol, the goal highlights will be available within a few minutes of the game finishing and a detailed match report will be available from a number of sources. On OTIB we’ll be rating, for days to come, the performances of everyone involved. Unless you’ve made equivalent arrangements with the media, you’re best to stay with your wife and newborn child. If you have made broadcast arrangements please send us the link so that we can assess the performance of the midwife. (Good luck to the three of you)

  25. If your child is born before KO tomorrow, I would go to the game. It is very very important that mother and child ‘bond’ in the first hours after birth....... You sticking around would jeopardize that, best you leave them to it. On the other hand if your child has not been born before you head off to the game......then go anyway. Turn your phone off and, with a bit of luck, you will be in the Dolman so if there are any announcements over the tannoy asking you to go and find the nearest steward you won’t hear it anyway!

  26. If Villa's losses are as suggested, you couldn't imagine how desperate I am for the EFL to act now, stop just talking the talk, get their fingers out of their collective arses and apply a points deduction to take them out of the play off positions. This is not about being vindictive to a particular club, or that such action might benefit us, but because without hitting clubs hard ffp will be a farce and the EFL will effectively be condoning clubs cheating to gain an advantage over every other club. A club in Villa's position being properly punished might just be the catalyst for ffp

  27. If we go up, I would use it as an opportunity to sign the best young players from the Championship that are currently out of our reach along with a top midfielder and striker. With the parachute payments, you can afford to increase wage bill by 50% and spend £50m as long as the contracts you give are not over 3 years in length. If we did go up and signed the likes of Kalas, DaSilva, Maupay, Pearson and Bowen I would be semi confident we would stay up. I think LJ would approach things differently to the likes of Cardiff, Huddersfield and Brighton which is defence first. LJ would give it

  28. Yes. Probably because someone, somewhere else had done this. The whole thing escalates, becoming an arms-race of paying tribute ("our great player must be remembered at least as heroically as their great player") and keeping-up-with-(and where possible, just a bit ahead of)the-Joneses/rivals. A player has a stand named after them, then every other club does the same; then the first statue, and inevitably, every Tom, Dick and Harry Kane has a statue (grounds will be a nightmare to get in and out of in future, what with the dozens of bloody statues of former players erected about the place)

  35. There are studies somewhere, that it's the stress of the situation. It's why with old couples, it can be common for older couples to pass away close , time wise , to each other. High stress can do many tbings to the body, a heart attack is one of them. If his son hadn't passed away, it probably wouldn't have happened. It's why this kind of stress is referred to as a broken heart.

  36. Yes, yes and yes! The above is exactly what we should do. Sprinkle in a few loan signings (Abraham, Reece) from our good buddies Chelsea and I'd be confident we could stay up, and if we didn't, would have the right players to jump straight back up again. We need to be smart and learn from Cardiff and Fulham's mistakes. One didn't bring in the right quality, the other just chucked money at it and ignored the players that got them there. We need to have faith in the boys that worked their socks off to get us there, give them a chance to prove themselves but also bring in the right q

  38. We’re becoming far to mawkish. People die, accidents happen and sometimes it’s unfair and shitty but that’s the way it’s always been. We are far too obsessed with grandstanding gestures just because someone’s snuffed it. The only time I can see retiring a number as reasonable is if the player was wearing it when they died on the pitch (and that would only be due to following players being superstitious). Ridiculous.

  39. I want to say it was Hull away. Was the very first thing I saw on the stream I was watching, early in the second half. If I haven't got the games mixed up Brownhill scored the winner from outside the area.

  40. LJ was asked if COD not playing had anything to do with contract talks and/or wanting to leave. LJ said he didn't know but then went on to say that COD doesn't play through pain and that might come down to him being young and not having many injuries, not knowing what you can play through. He gave opposite example as Maenpaa who is much older and will play through pain as he knows he can.

  42. If we go up we should build similar to Burnley. Buy good talent that can grow, strong players that can grind results and bring us back up if we go down - that would be my ideal situation anyway, not spending 100m like Fulham but instead investing in decent young or prem proven British players

  43. To answer some of the above, which I kind of forgot to do in my haste, I would look to sign at least 5 or 6 quality players, and wouldn't baulk at the club spending in excess of £35million. A few PL loans would also be good. Would certainly avoid the Fulham route of doing business!

  46. Yes you're right, the shirts were a nice gesture and well received but using deadstock that incurred no new cost - I doubt it needed to even go up the chain to Mark Ashton for sign off such was the real terms costs involved. Free coach travel on the other hand was raised with MA and JL in the last Q&A and they spun the biggest non-answer ever, other than to show they're not interested. I do find it extraordinary, with the run in we have, and two tough away games to finish, that still we find a club that is reluctant to maximize the away support possible, in a way some other clubs rout
